Third Episode: Who turns on the microphones?
We have seen the important role of the PPC in the life of the Parish. They maintain the long term vision of the Parish. But the day to day operation of the Parish depends on the work of different teams.
Everyday the chalices are put on the credence table, people are invited to bring up the gifts, the appropriate vestments are set out, the intentions are written down, bread and wine are prepared, candles are lit and a thousand other details are taken care of so that we can have our daily or Sunday Mass. Altar linen has to be washed and spaces have to be maintained. And then of course .. the arcane world of the microphones has to be challenged … the dreaded ON|OFF switch has to be faced (Ambo, Altar, Chair mikes … ).
The people who do this day in day out are members of the Altar society, they meet from time to time to coordinate themselves and they are the ones who make our liturgies possible.
It is amazing the dedication these people have shown over the years- an opportunity to say -Thank you.
